I have recently been diagnosed with PCS after having a bad horse riding accident 6months ago.
I feel really confused over this and worried about the potential effects on my working life, basically I work as a nurse, up until now I haven't had any time off work due to my PCS until now and I'm so worried as I feel like I'm going to be dismissed from work because of my sickness record. I have never had the best sickness record as I have suffered with migraines since I was 4yrs old. Up until now I have had 2days of sickness in 16months, one day due to a migraine and the other because I had norovirus and my hospital infection control policy wouldn't allow me to work as it can be contagious.
I rang my boss today to get them to refer me to occupational health re my PCS and was advised that I had a sickness absence meeting arranged for next week. I knew nothing about this as they have been sending letters to my old address.
Anyway I'm so worried about the potential effect this PCS could have on my sickness and the repercussions for my job.
I rang my fiancé today after speaking to my boss in floods of tears because I feel so helpless and worried
Has anyone any advice or experience of PCS or ways of dealing with your employer. Any advice would be much appreciated.
